40 teachers from across the country will join us this summer for a five-day institute designed to introduce participants to different dimensions of the Middle East. From social movements to geopolitics to cultures and more, teachers will deepen their understanding of both the historic and modern Middle East. Participants will learn from scholars and community experts, study authentic texts, and participate in experiential learning activities. Throughout the institute, teachers will reflect on integrating content learned into the classroom. All expenses are covered for selected participants.
